Description

Swinging one of the two doors open we are met with 2 sporty saddle leather covered wide tuck and roll buckets with accompanying headrests. In back is a matching bench stretching across to vertical ribbed tuck and roll leather covered panels. This holds true for the doors as well which are in very nice condition. This car sports the XR-7 package, which was introduced in January of 1967. Much was made of the Cougar's Euro theme and the XR-7 accentuated this. The dash was covered with burled walnut appliqu. In front of the steering wheel within full view of the pilot, a lineup of 4 round gauges 2 of which are a speedometer and a tachometer and the others being warning light clusters and fuel indicator. This appliqu panel is within a stitched black leather dash top and front which is in very good condition. Below is another beige horizontal panel that has a few knobs and the ignition. In the center dash is a cascade of black leather and more wood appliqu. Underneath the radio on the XR-7 are the temp sliders just above the floor. Adding to the European flair, was a row of Jaguar style toggle switches above the center vents which controls various interior lights. In front of the passenger is an oval panel wood appliqu dash front which has an inset clock. Below is a beige covered glovebox. Headliner is beige and vinyl and tight, and the carpeting is green and very original looking. I'm running my paws and nails through this stuff.
Under the hood is a very clean engine bay and shows nicely. In its center is the star in the form of a blue block and intake 428 Cobra Jet V8 which is original to this car. It is topped with a 4-barrel carburetor, and a surrounding chrome air cleaner covering. Valve covers are also chromed and nice and shiny. On the back is a 4-speed manual transmission and is a Toploader. On the back is a Ford 9-inch 3.50 Equalock rear axle. One wild cat and a beauty to boot.
